OUR DESIRE IS FOR
OUR STUDENS TO FOCUS
ON THE PURPOSE GOD
HAS FOR THEIR LIVES.
The apostle Paul wrote to the believers at
Colossae, "and whatever you do in word
or deed, do all in the name of the Lord
Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through
Him" (Colossians 3:17).
During our Convocation service this August, we
sang the Bryan alma mater with that triumphant
refrain, "By our motto we firmly stand, 'Christ
Above All.'" Our motto makes all the difference as
to why Bryan stands out among the myriad of col-
leges across this country. Our desire is for our stu-
dents to focus on the purpose God has for their
lives. And finding that purpose begins with a per-
sonal relationship — taking His name as a Christian
and surrendering to His service. When our students'
focus and purpose is to let every word and action
be done in the name of the Lord Jesus, then God
will direct their plans for their years at Bryan and
their life-long service lo Him.
We are truly grateful to God for what He is
doing in our students' lives. My favorite part of the
school year is experiencing the excitement of new
Bryan families arriving on campus with eager sons
and daughters who are anxious, yet ready, to begin
their college careers.
This fall, nearly 300 new students joined the
Bryan family, the largest freshman class in Bryan's
78-year history. This year also marks the first time
the total college enrollment has climbed above
1,000 students, 700 of whom are members of the
traditional student body.
And we give thanks to God our Father not only
for what He is doing in our students' lives, but also
for what He is doing on our campus. In this issue of
Bryan Life, you will see many exciting additions to
our academic programs as well as to our physical
facilities. The Bryan Center for Critical Thought
and Practice will sponsor three symposia this year
with topics ranging from war to climate change.
Also, the Center for Law and Government will
sponsor a symposium on biblical worldview as well
as one on the scourge of human trafficking.
For the many friends and donors who faithfully
give to Bryan, thank you for allowing God to use
you to bless all of our students. Your support is a
tremendous encouragement for us to remain vigi-
lant in maintaining our purpose, to do all in the
name of the Lord Jesus, and in word and deed to
live out our motto of "Christ Above All."

Welcome To Bryan
A New Year Begins
New students arrive in record numbers
Take a record incoming class, add new faculty
members, mix in some new facilities and you
have the makings of an exciting year.
Combine with that a challenge to remember our
Reformation heritage and Bryan College is poised to
see God do great things as the 2007-08 academic year
Rudd Auditorium was filled on Aug. 25, as nearly
300 new students and their families gathered for the
beginning of orientation. Bryan President Dr. Stephen
D. Livesay pointed out that there were students from 33
states and nine countries represented in the entering
Dayton Mayor Bob Vincent told the students,
"You're going to feel welcome downtown. We're so
proud to have Bryan College and Bryan students as part
of our community. You've made a good choice, and I'm
sure you will learn that as you go along."
Bryan faculty and staff present for the occasion
encircled the students and their families as prayers were
offered for God to bless their transition to a new phase
of their lives and for Him to complete the work He was
As students left to meet in their orientation groups,
parents remained in Rudd where Vice President for
Student Life Dr. Peter Held and other college personnel
answered questions and offered suggestions for parent-
ing from a distance. New this year was a panel discus-
sion involving three students and the parent of both a
junior and a freshman. Panelists offered insights and
suggestions on dealing with the changes parents — and
students — experience as a child leaves home for college.
Convocation, featuring an address by Dr. Timothy
George, dean ofBeeson Divinity School at Samford
University, formally opened the academic year on

E REALIZATION THAT
KNOWLEDGE OF THE
WORLD CANNOT BE
KNOWLEDGE OF THE
- DR. CAL WHITE
Dr. Livesay praised the faculty, telling the college
family that "Bryan College is only as strong as its pro-
fessors, as deep as our faculty. T want you to know that
the ladies and gentlemen seated behind me are first
quality in character and preparation, with a heart of
service and dedication to our God."
Academic Vice President Dr. Cal White said, "Our
motto, Christ Above All, indicates our clear dependence
on Him. ..to help us excel in both the life of the mind
and of the spirit. We study with the realization that
knowledge of the world cannot be separated from
knowledge of the Creator."
Dr. George titled his lecture "Lessons from Luther
for Today," drawing comparisons between Martin
Luther's world of the 15th and 16th centuries and our
world today. "Seldom has there been a time more like
our own time than when Martin Luther was born in
1483," he said. It was a time of great inventions and dis-
coveries, an "age of great splendor in art, literature, and
architecture. It was the best of times.
"But it was also the worst of times, like our own
age. There was violence and war, peasants revolting, the
Black Death swept Europe carrying away a third of the
human population. Death was an ever-present reality."
He recounted Luther's years of searching for peace
with God, his struggle to understand how God could be
good and how a person could love a holy God who
punishes sin. "As he pondered the meaning of Romans
1: 16 it came to him that the righteousness of God was
the righteousness by which God could declare sinners
righteous because of what Jesus Christ had done. 'It was
like I had been born again,' Luther said. Out of this
flowed the structure of the Reformation, justification by
Dr. George said Luther came to his understanding
of justification by faith by studying the Bible, which in
turn drove him to translate the Latin Bible into
German. "The fact that we can hold a Bible, read its
words, is part of the legacy of the Reformation and of
He said Christians owe their understanding of the
true nature of the Church to Luther: "It is the people of
God coming together for fellowship, but going back
into the world to share the message of the Gospel."
Bryan Life 3
Luther's faith, grounded in an understanding of the
Scripture, gave him courage to stand firm in his beliefs.
"At the Diet of Worms he was asked to recant. He real-
ized that if he did not, he could be killed, as was Jan
Hus a hundred years before. But Luther dared to stand
against the pope, the emperor, the princes of Germany.
'Unless I am persuaded by conscience and reason I can-
not recant. Here I stand. God help me, I can do no
Dr. George said lessons we can learn from Luther
include our justification by faith alone; the Bible is not
a book to be studied only in academic classes, but is
something that should transform our lives; we have a
Bible available to us in our own language; and we have
an understanding of the church as the people of God,
not a building. "God's kingdom is what counts; it will

looking forward to about college, and his answer
rings with the excitement of any other Bryan
College freshman: making new friends, learning more
about the Bible, going to soccer games, and experiencing
You might never guess by the warmth of his smile and
the confidence in his voice that by the time he had
reached the age of most of his fellow classmates, John had
been separated from his family, dislocated from his home,
and recruited into an army,.
John comes from the war-torn African country of
Sudan. He committed his life to Christ as a young child
and introduced his mother, brothers, and sister to
Christianity. At age 10, he and his little brother were sepa-
rated from their family during the chaos of the Second
Sudanese War. The two walked barefoot for 15 days to the
closest refugee camp, where his brother would eventually
die from sickness. At 14, John joined the Sudan People's
Liberation Army in Ethiopia, which sought to overturn the
corrupt Sudanese government. By the time a peace agree-
ment was signed in 2005, John had received multiple
injuries from shrapnel and rock. Sadly, his is just one of
thousands of stories told by the many "boy soldiers" of
After the war, John was reunited with his family, after
eighteen years apart. He was delighted to find that his
father, whose salvation he had prayed for every day, had
accepted Christ while he was away.

English and teaching, John was eager to learn more about
the Bible after the war was over. While studying in
Uganda, John made contact with representatives from the
ministry of Rev. Rob Norris of Fourth Presbyterian
Church in Bethesda, Md. Dr. Norris has a vision to build a
Christian church and school in Sudan, with leaders trained
in Christian institutions in the United States. When John
heard about the opportunity to study abroad, he volun-
"I said I wanted to go to the best Christian college in
the United States of America," he said. "They told me I
should come to Bryan College in Tennessee."
And he did. Dr. Ron Petitte, professor of politics and
government, had met Dr. Norris years ago and suggested
his effort be linked with Bryan College, a concept both Dr.
Norris and Bryan President Dr. Stephen D. Livesay
embraced. With financial support from the Schnabel
Foundation Co. and tireless efforts from various Bryan
administrative offices and Fourth Presbyterian Church,
John arrived in Dayton as classes began.
"I feel that I am at home," says John. "Everyone has
been very friendly and kind to me. They all want to help
me. I feel thai: T am at a good Christian schooi anil I thank
the Lord for opening the door for me."
A team of tutors, admissions counselors, and student life
staff is helping John adjust to his first time in the U.S.
Majoring in Christian Ministry with a goal to attend semi-
nary after graduating from Bryan, John knows exactly what
he wants to do with his life.
"I want to go back to my country and teach my peo-
ple," he said. "In Sudan, many people are Christians, but
most do not have a solid foundation in the Bible. I have
always loved to teach and my hope is that God will use me
in this way to be a blessing."
While living in the United States requires some adjust-
ment, John says he sees some familiar things around cam-
"My tribe in Sudan was the tribe of the lion," he said.
"In my language, 'Bui' means lion. And even here at Bryan
College, I see many lions around."

BRYAN DOESN'T PUT SPIRITUALITY OVER ACADEMICS
OR ACADEMICS OVER SPIRITUALITY.
THERE IS A GOOD BALANCE, AND THAT'S IMPORTANT TO ME.
Kristen Phelps, daughter of Mark and Mandy Phelps of Asheboro, N.C.,
plans to major in communication studies, and is considering a career in foreign
issions after graduation. Kristen is a graduate of Faith Christian School in
Lamseur, N.C., where she was president of the Honor Society, editor of the year-
book, and a member of the school ensemble. A close friend invited her to travel
to Bryan to visit the friend's brother a year ago when he was a freshman. "I knew
this was the place God wanted me when we were here," she said. The spiritual
atmosphere, "making your relationship with God strong but sharing that with the
world"; the welcoming atmosphere on campus; and the academic push for excel-
lence, "I know the professors want me to get a good education," all entered/into
her decision to attend Bryan.
Lauren Pratt, daughter of Mark and Cathie Pratt of Oak Ridge, Tenn., is an exer-
cise science major who plans to pursue a career in physical therapy. Lauren is a gradu-
ate of Oak Podge High School where she was a member of the National Honor

has played volleyball and run track and was co-editor of the yearbook staff. She learned
about Bryan during a volleyball combine where Bryan volleyball Coach Leo Sayles and
other coaches evaluated players. "T met Coach Sayles, and we stayed in touch. I visited
Bryan and liked it," she said. She chose Bryan because of its size, its proximity to home
and because "I felt at home here."l/i addition to playing volleyball, Lauren plans to
become involved in several of the/campus organizations and a Bible study.
Faith Wagner, daughter of Bruce and Robyn Wagner of Knoxville.Tenn., is a
pre-medicine major. After college, she plans to attend medical school and work as a
medical missionary in a third-world country. Faith is a graduate of Farragut High

Girl Scout Gold Award. She learned of Bryan when her student government associ-
ation helped staff a college fair where she met admissions counselor Bryan Day, '03.
She said she appreciates the fact that "Bryan doesn't put spirituality over academics
or academics over spirituality. There is a good balance; that's important." At Bryan
she hopes to be involved with the Worldview Team and with intramural sports.
Evan Johnson, son of Carter and Gale Johnson of Dayton, Tenn., plans to
major in history. He plans to attend graduate school after college. Evan is a home

Why a Worldview Education?
I wasn't there, but I heard that it happened again. At a
luncheon a few weeks ago, the convocation speaker, Dr.
Timothy George, dean of Beeson Divinity School,
expressed that he was impressed by the level of questions asked
by Bryan College students. This has been a recurrent theme
among some of the notable scholars who have visited campus in
the last several years including Dr. J. Budziszewski (University
of Texas), Dr. Robert George (Princeton University), Nancy
Pearcey (The Discovery Institute), and Dr. Ben Mitchell (The
Center for Bioethics and Human Dignity).
Challenging students to love God fully by thinking deeply,
discerningly, and truthfully about His world is foundational to
what a truly Christian education is. According to the way the
Scriptures describe the grand narrative of God's redemptive
plan for creation, Christianity is neither a religion of ascetic
withdrawal nor a dualistic philosophy that denigrates certain
human activity as less than spiritual. Rather, followers of Christ
are called to dive deeply — and hopefully headfirst — into the
significant historical and cultural issues of the human situation.
As G.K. Chesterton once said, "If Christianity should happen to
be true-that is to say if its God is the real God of the universe-
then defending it may mean talking about anything and every-
This is what is meant at Bryan when the language of world-
view is used. Because everyone has a worldview (a basic way in
which they see, understand, and interact in and with the world)
education is worldview-shaping. It is the responsibility of a
Christian institution to challenge students with the Christian
view of life and the world, while exposing the non-Christian
worldviews that others hold and which are behind historical
movements and cultural expressions.
In his book Worldview: The History of a Concept, David
Naugle writes, "Conceiving of Christianity as a worldview has
been one of the most significant developments in the recent
history of the church." According to Naugle, the teachings and
writings of James Orr (1844-1913) and Abraham Kuyper (1837-
1 920) are the "headwaters" from which emerged a stream of
Christian worldview thinkers. The influence of these men can
be seen in the writings of such notables as Carl F. H. Henry,
Francis Schaeffer, Charles Colson, Nancy Pearcey, James Sire,
David Noebel, and two men responsible for introducing the
worldview concept at Bryan College, Dr. W. Gary Phillips and
Dr. William E.Brown.
Many Bryan College alumni, myself included, learned
worldview from classes taught by Dr. Phillips (Distinguished
Professor of Bible) and Dr. Brown (Professor of Bible and for-
mer President). Their book Making Sense of Your World: A
Biblical Worldview is the required text for the first required
course taken by Bryan students. Biblical Worldview. In this
class, Bryan students are introduced to a broader view of the
faith, as a total view of life and the world with an explanatory
power unrivaled by other worldviews. Alums may be interested

CHALLENGING STUDENTS TO

by John Stonestreet, '97, Director of Summit Ministries
to know that a revised, expanded version of Making Sense of
Your World will be released by Sheffield Press in the spring of
Bryan's worldview emphasis has expanded significantly over
the last two decades into a firmly embedded institutional value.
Here are a few expressions worth highlighting:
Expanded Coursework: Today, Bryan students are required to
take a total of three courses which focus on worldview in addi-
tion to the worldview integration that takes place in their cho-
sen major courses. Their training culminates in the senior-level
course "Worldview and Life" which provides a capstone experi-
ence for students to connect the Biblical worldview with their
Expanded Outreach: Bryan's focus on worldview training is
not just internally focused. One of the most popular student
ministries is the Worldview Team. Led by Alan Corlew and Ben
Williams, this program allows Bryan students to teach world-
view discernment and formation through the utilization of con-
temporary culture to high school students across America.
Students involved in this ministry are consistently evaluating the
worlds of media, technology, and youth culture. Teaching others
forces them to apply what they are learning in the classroom.
Strategic Partnerships: Since 1995, Bryan has partnered with
Summit Ministries to offer two-week conferences for high
school and college students, as well as a one-week conference
for adults. These annual summer conferences feature some of the
premier Christian thinkers and speakers in America on topics
relating to worldview, apologetics, and leadership. Showcased at
these conferences are some of Bryan College's own scholars
including Dr. Jeff Myers, Dr. Paul Boling, Dr. Ken Turner, Dr.
Whit Jones, Dr. Beth Impson, and Mr. Corlew. Students exposed
to Summit's teaching get a "head start" in college, are better
able to handle the world of competing ideas, and tend to
emerge as leaders in their churches, on their campuses, and
throughout life. And, many Bryan students invest their summers
by working on the Summit summer staff.
In addition to the programs listed above, Bryan students are
presented numerous opportunities through on-campus programs
such as the Bryan Center for Critical Thought and Practice,
missions outreach programs, and Practical Christian Involvement
as well as relationships with the Acton Institute, Passing the
Baton International, and other likeminded organizations. Each
of these can potentially contribute to a holistic view of
Christian education, challenging them to develop a distinctly
Biblical worldview and confront the ideas that take people,
nations, and cultures captive.
John Stoneslreel is Executive Director of Summit
Ministries. He is a 1997 Bryan graduate and
earned an M.A. degree in Christian Thought
from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

I WANTED TO
TO BRYAN BECAUSE
OF WHAT IT HAD
MEANT TO ME
Weyhe supports alma mater with annuity
Giving back has become a solu-
tion to a tax problem and a
source of improved income for
alumna Lois Weyhe.
Lois, who earned a degree in
English at Bryan in 1 948, then worked
eight years at the college, recently faced
the challenge of having to pay a signifi-
cant capital gains tax on stock she had
held for many years. A Charitable Gift
Annuity she purchased from Bryan
College alleviated that problem and
increased her income at the same time.
"I wanted to leave something to
Bryan because of what it had meant to
me," she said.
Education — a degree in English and
a foundation for a Master's degree in
English and Educational Administration
from Peabody College ofVanderbilt
University — was one thing she gained
from her Bryan experience. The bigger
benefit, in her mind, was a broader per-
spective of Christian service. "I discov-
ered that God grants to us our abilities
and talents, and they can be used as a
witness in any career or occupation."
She originally planned to be a
Christian Education major but changed
Following her graduation from
Bryan, she became registrar, a position
she held for eight years.
Although she worked as a student,
she also was involved in ministry efforts
and even traveled as part of a trio with
the Gospel Messengers, building fond
memories along the way.
"I needed to rely largely upon my
own resources to pay for college, and
was able to work in the administration
office where I gained experience in
record keeping and registration.
"Later, God led me to make a
change, and through a previous contact
with the director of admissions at
Wheaton College, I was offered a posi-
She went to work in the admissions
office and then became associate direc-
tor of admissions, a position she held
until her retirement in 1 985.
Because of her memories of Bryan,
the many friendships with faculty and
students which have lasted through
many years, and the college's testimony
as a Christian institution, "I wanted to
give something back."
In discussion with Development
Director Jim Barth she decided that a
Charitable Gift Annuity could help solve
her capital gains tax challenge and pro-
vide a good current return, "which has
increased my income," she said.
"Expenses don't go down; they keep
going up. All of this helped me make
the decision. I'm very pleased with it."
Mr. Barth said Miss Weyhe's experi-
ence is similar to that of others who
have invested in Charitable Gift
Annuities from Bryan.
"I'm happy to speak with anyone
who is interested in ways to increase
their income, reduce their tax liability,
and help Bryan provide an outstanding
Christ-centered education to young
people," he said.

ities or other ideas to address financial
planning needs, contact Mr. Barth at 1-

Bryan coaches work up sweats over summer
Summer vacation generally means "time away from work,"
but for Bryan's athletic coaches, summer vacation sounded
suspiciously like another day at the office.
Most of the coaching staff spent significant time working in
camps, teaching younger athletes the fundamentals of their sports,
although baseball Coach Joel Johnson added some serious field
maintenance duties to his schedule.
Women's Soccer Coach Mark Sauve, Volleyball Coach Leo
Sayles, Women's Basketball Coach Jamy Bechler, Men's Basketball
Coach Don Rekoske, and Cross Country Coach Rodney Stoker
all participated in sports camps and tournaments over the summer.
Coach Sauve worked with an outreach ministry of
Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, Ala. "I had three
high school kids assisting me, and we had 25 to 30 kids," he said.
"We had a great time."
In addition to coaching he spent time talking with his high,
school helpers, and encouraged them to consider choosing Bryan
for their college. Two of the three actually came to campus for the
Highlight visit event on Labor Day this September.
Coach Sayles packed 12 volleyball camps into his summer,
including seven on campus. The Bryan camps were designed to
build relationships in the Dayton community, teach fundamentals
of the sport, and quietly present the Gospel.
"I was really trying to challenge the players to recognize the
opportunities they are given, to make sure the way they act on
court represents Christ in a good way. We led Bible studies and
worship with them." Coach Sayles also coached at two camps with
Belmont University volleyball program.
The newest member of the Bryan coaching team, women's bas-
ketball Coach Jamy Bechler, added getting acquainted with the
Lady Lions to his summer schedule. He traveled to Hawaii to
coach an all-star team at the Diamond Head Classic in Honolulu.
Players from Alabama, Tennessee, Texas, and Kansas made up the
teams in the tournament. His team finished with only one loss, to
the "Hawaii Select" team.
In July he returned to Columbus, Ohio, where he had coached
the national championship basketball team a year ago, for the USA
Junior Nationals International Sports Festival. This year, his team
from Oklahoma reached the final four of the tournament, where
they lost to the eventual national champion.
Coach Rekoske's basketball camps, designed for grades kinder-
garten through six, and grades six through ten, had dual goals of
helping improve youth basketball play in the community through a
combination of focus on fundamentals and personal attention, and
building relationships with the community. At the same time, the
coach shared biblical principles in Team Talk sessions and as oppor-
tunities arose throughout the day. Some 60 children participated.
There also was time this summer for the Lions to gather for
several days of teambuilding activities. One of those was a trip to
the Silverdale Detention Facility in nearby Chattanooga. "The
prisoners seemed appreciative," Coach Rekoske said. "Now they
actually cheer for us. It wasn't always that way." A high point of the
game was his being able to share the Gospel at halftime, emphasiz-
ing the point that "God works in mysterious ways."
For Coach Stoker, the summer involved assisting the director
of a sports camp in Chattanooga, where a number of Bryan stu-
dents served as "coaches" for the campers. "We were there to 'sell'
the host school to prospective students," he explained. But in the
two-week sessions the coaches developed relationships with their
campers, shared devotions, and addressed needs of the young peo-
ple. "My job was to see that the coaches were doing their job and
make life easier for the director."
Coach Johnson had 22 young people at his baseball camps
before he, coaches Jack Traylor and Taylor Hasty, and others began
rebuilding the baseball field's infield. For two weeks he and two of
his players taught children ages 6 to 1 2 the fundamentals of the
sport, focusing on fielding, hitting, and throwing. The second week
emphasi7ed pitching and hitting. Reconstruction of the infield
included removing the turf, grading, and resodding. With Varner
Construction Co. doing the grading, the field was leveled, the grass
restored, and the field was made ready for play again.
